We've been trying to get fibre connected for months and have had a number of Chorus visits, but still no success.
We have buried copper phone cables and we see where they enter the basement. However, where they enter the house they are in flexi-conduit, which Chorus say is not suitable for fibre. Somewhere near the house, the flexi-conduit must become rigid conduit, which will them go to the pole near our property. This would be suitable for fibre, but up till now we haven't been able to find the rigid conduit.
However we had a dig in a random spot and found a wide black conduit (say 50mm) and next to it a smaller (say 20 mm) black conduit with a purple stripe running along it. Both are at about 600 mm deep. Is there a chance that the smaller conduit with the purple stripe contains the copper phone lines? How do we find out?
